Nashville Wedding Invitations

Designing your own wedding invitations has to be a designers most challenging project ever. And these are some to be proud of. The groom, Jefferson Perky of Perky Bros., designed these with an elegant typographic flair. They combine textural wood grain photography and letterpress printed type.

We produced these cards together on a 13 x 18 press sheet. The wedding invite was printed along with a save the date card, a thank you card, an accommodations card and a die cut vertical belly band. The stock was 100% cotton 110lbC Pearl White Crane Lettra. The wood grain was digitally printed, then the black type was letterpress printed.

When thinking about doing a letterpress wedding invitation it is important to consider all the cards you need upfront. We ultimately print everything together – saving us time and our clients cost. (Example – if you know you need a thank you card, plan to print it with the main invitation set.)

Save The Date – Woodgrain Letterpress

We do a ton of custom wedding letterpress work with designers around the country. These were hot of the press today and designed by the groom-to-be, Nick Brue. We went all out on this card with the production details:

Brown Side: Clear Varnish for woodgrain print and custom silver/gold metallic for type.

White Side: Blind letterpress (no ink) for the pattern and custom match ink to brown stock

Then we glue the sheets together back to back in register. And yes, we love to print extremely tiny type.
